now. scott mack gr scott mcglcgrew joining us. >> remember no one has been banned from coming to the u.s. up until now behalf that order. so this is a win finally for the white house you. the court says it is willing to hear the cases brought by two circuits into one case. in the meantime, the court has allowed parts of the ban to take effect. let's go through them. we're talking about the countries iran, libya, somalia, sudan, syria and yemen. the justices say they understand the plaintiffs' complaints that barring people completely from the six countries can can do americans harm. so like not letting a family member to visit. so the court says it will allow people with bona fide connections to come in whult they wait for their decision. relatives, students, people with job offers from employers in america. people with no connection to the
united states at all, though, will have to stay out. this includes refugees, the charity conditions reach out to a refugee and offer to bring that person in. that is not considered a bona fide connection. the white house released a statement that reads in part today's unanimous supreme court decision is a clear vehicle toerp for our national security. it allows the travel suspension for the six terror-prone countries ands refugee suspension to become largely effective. as president, i cannot allow people into on our country who want to do us harm. i am particularly gratified that the supreme court decision was 9-0. now, the court does issue a new challenge to the white house. travel bans were set to expire after 90 days for all travel, 120 for refugees. the executive claimed it needed time to research and adjust screenings. both those deadlines have come and gone. the court wants the government to explain why that makes this moot at this point. >> all right.
